Theater Extravaganza

Experience all areas of the theater, including acting, singing and dancing. Emphasis in all areas is on the development of communication skills. Learn practical techniques in acting, basic movement and voice, as well as how to choose the right performance material and how to audition.

Technology Adventure

Come join us and become the next aspiring entrepreneur. During this week of fun and learning, we will use Microsoft Publisher, PowerPoint and Adobe Photoshop to create business flyers, newsletters, promotional slideshows, logos and a company website. As an added bonus, entrepreneurs will present their ideas to a panel of “potential investors” to see if they can make a deal for possible investments. Please bring a USB drive and come ready to be creative and have tons of fun!

Forensics

The basics of every crime scene will be covered as they are used in everyday police and investigative work. From identifying fingerprints to handwriting analysis, all techniques will be examined in order to answer the classic question: Who did it?

Photography

Aspiring photographers will learn how to capture eye-catching photos with the camera that’s always with you: your phone. The week will be filled with interactive tutorials, hands-on activities and creative challenges that will promote the ability to take bold, gallery-quality photos in any situation.

Science

Explore and investigate multiple areas of science, including (but not limited to) biology, chemistry, physics and engineering through hands-on experiences and laboratory experiments.

STEM

Come for an exciting week of exploration, skill building, and testing limits. Join us for a hands on learning experience where we introduce basic engineering concepts, 3d printing, and safe use of hand tools in our state-of-the-art MakerSpace.  Expect activities like a catapult building competition, 3d printed cars, and soldering basic circuits.

Art

Do you love art and care about our planet? Discover how to create art that has a low environmental impact, but a big social one! We’ll spend time in the studio and in nature as we explore ways to make our own “green” art supplies, recycle everyday items into materials for making art, and see how artists use their work to promote positive changes for the environment.

Leadership Development

Do you have what it takes to be a leader?  Spend the week with members of the Bishop Ahr Student Council and develop your leadership skills through discussion, hands-on and interactive lessons.

Financial Success

It’s never too early to start building good financial habits! During this interactive class, you will explore the basics of personal finance.  Starting with goal setting, we will continue through budgeting, saving and investing and credit. You will leave with the foundation you need to continue to build a positive financial future. So, who wants to be a “millionaire?”
